FROSTY FRIDAY CARRIAGE RIDES

Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride around Downtown Frederick! Each carriage ride lasts approximately 20 minutes and can accommodate up to 12 passengers. Rides are $12 per passenger. Small children under the age of 3 can ride in your lap without a ticket. ALL RIDES HAVE SOLD OUT.

LOCATION (pick-up location has changed): Carriage will leave every 30 minutes from the parking lot of 327 N Market St, beside Olde Towne Tavern. This is a different location from where the carriages picked up last year. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled ride time to check in.
